Ascent Trip Report

We enjoyed the unpopulated trail with lush ferns closer to the summit. We were glad this tower had plexiglass as the wind in the tower was whipping- it howled and shook the fire tower. (Such a shame to see so much broken glass beneath it.) The 360 views were a treat on such a clear day. We were happy to realize we have a fun and easy hike near our home, though the trail was a little boring for our 10 and 12 year old sons who love rock scrambles.
